starts when I was 13, when I reached puberty (Now 20 years old already).
got tired and sleepy during the day.
felt fatigue so much that it forces me to sleep during the day; even
I have a good sleep the night before.
worst, I slept more than 11 hours per day!
a good diet, take supplement like chicken essence and vitamins.
does not help. For your additional info, the feeling of "tiredness"
is not like a person had done a heavy workout or something.
more like, I easily felt sleepy and yawn a lot during the day.
will also become slow. And when I do accidentally sleep, i woke up
and look at my watch... "Gosh...12 hours had passed!"....
What's wrong with me?
you could give some information regarding this. Thank you. ^Y
